Jackson County assault suspect in custody
JEFFERSON - The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office was called to the Highway 124 Texaco Station Saturday in response to a shooting.
Upon arrival Deputies discovered a male who had been shot outside the store but who had relocated inside the store. The suspect, found in the parking lot, was detained after a female witness pointed him out to Deputies as the shooter.
The female stated the shooter, identified as Terry Lynn Seagraves, 47, of Talmo, tried to run her and the male victim off the road several times.
She drove her vehicle into the parking lot of the Texaco to reach a more populated area.
Seagraves allegedly approached the passenger side of the vehicle, shooting the male passenger in the lower part of his body.
Seagraves then ordered the victim out of the vehicle and to get down on his knees. Seagraves threw the gun in the back of his truck and grabbed a baseball bat, following the victim into the store and then assaulted the victim with the bat.
Seagraves was leaving the store when Deputies arrived on the scene.
Seagraves was arrested and charged with one count of Family Violence Aggravated Assault, three counts of Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Battery, Battery, Possession of a Firearm during the commission of a crime and Criminal Attempt to Commit Murder.
Jackson County Sheriff Janis Mangum said Seagraves is currently in the Jackson County Jail with no bond.
